Cheers Daz,

When are you next meeting, this Friday I assume??

Next thing, assuming my trip the DVLA is hassle free I'm going to need some plates, any recommendations?

These guys look ok -

I have to say that the M.O.T is one of the most stressful things ever!!

I think I dread them so much because I'm sure that one of these years they're going to pull me up on worn kingpins or play in the steering box (both of which would be an expense I can ill afford!!). :(

This years was relatively easy in that Flo only failed on poor headlight patterns (new reflectors sorted that out).

Having the certificate handed over is such a top feeling :D

Visited the nice man at the DVLA yesterday afternoon, all the paperwork was in order so hopefully I could be registered by the end of the week :D

Daz, Won't be able to make it this friday as I have to pick up my better half from the airport, plus I doubt if I'll have my plates by then unless you know of anywhere local that can make them up while you wait??

How come you're having plates made???

No worries, I am going to Goodward Friday but will most likely still go up the Chestnut later, alot of the guys dont take there vans up there anyway as they like a drink or two :wink: ...... did you go to the Reading DVLA in the end that's where I went they still sent me to poole mind you for inspection.

By plates I meant when I registered my van and needed plates I just went in Halfords ordered them and had them within about 4 days, dont know anybody who makes them while you wait.
